Community Service, Civic Organizations & Professional Affiliations
"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give."
We’re doing our part to make this region the best place to live, work and play! In fact, it’s the very principle we were founded on. Mr. Pugh’s charitable heart and dedication to community is legendary. Following his lead, many of our staff are actively involved in civic organizations and give freely of their time, talent and treasure. Giving back to the community is encouraged and we do that as individuals as well as in teams through events like Buddy’s Race Against Cancer or KARM’s Dragon Boat Race. We are also proud supporters of United Way of Greater Knoxville. Our civic involvement also involves memberships and support of various area Chambers of Commerce, as they are the front lines of bringing business and industry to this region.
We also stay on top of what’s going on in our region and our industry through involvement in professional organizations. This involvement reflects an investment in the very core of our own profession that is the foundation of our Firm, and affords us the chance to provide opportunities to future generations of accountants. Members of our firm are involved and hold leadership positions in the American Institute of CPA’s, Tennessee Society of CPA’s, Tennessee State Board of Accountancy, National Association of State Boards of Accountancy and other pillar organizations of our profession.
